This solo performance revolves around Juliet's famous "what's in a name" speech, first projected on a white table cloth, then spoken by a male voice off stage, with "Romeo" in the speech switched to "Juliet," and then said by Juliet. When she is not speaking, Juliet, in a red spaghetti strap dress and black fishnet stockings, expresses her sorrow with drinking and eating.
